I notice that my perceived exertion during a workout is higher when I’m in the litte ring at the front and in the middle of the coggs at the back (with 95 rpm) then when I’m using the big ring. The torque I need is higher when using the little ring. With common sense this is because of the momentum in the bigger gear?
Do other people encounter this as well? And should I be training with the little ring to get the most out of my workout?
